Barmouth Beach

Barmouth, Gwynedd

A long sandy beach and popular family destination on Cardigan Bay in the Snowdonia national park. The town can get busy. A land train runs along the promenade and there are traditional donkey rides, swing boats and amusement arcades. But the beach itself is vast and easily big enough to get away from it all.

Please will you sort out your car park machines which will not accept new pound coins. The car park is full of cross tourists and the town full of cross shopkeepers with no change to offer. I have visited Barmouth for many years. I am really disappointed that you have made this visit stressful. Please sort it out ASAP
